Six categories of dog bowls, the advantages and disadvantages are disclosed at once
You might think that the dog bowls are all the same, just choose the color you like, but in fact, different types of dog bowls have different characteristics, and even good or bad. Next, we will introduce the common dog bowls on the market. What are their advantages and disadvantages, and how do you choose?
1. Plastic Dog Bowl
Plastic dog bowls are often the cheapest dog bowls, and they vary in color and shape and won't break if dropped. However, for most dogs, these are not the best dog bowls. If the plastic material is too soft, it will leave scratches after the dog bites or scratches the dog bowl, causing bacteria to breed in it. Even some dogs are allergic to plastic, and the skin of the chin will become red, swollen and itchy. Plastic dog bowls will inevitably have scratches after being used for a long time. For the sake of hygiene, be sure to change them frequently or switch to dog bowls of other materials.
2. Ceramic Dog Bowl
Ceramic dog bowls look very textured and usually have beautiful patterns or colors. The material on the ceramic can help keep it clean and reduce the growth of bacteria. But the disadvantage is that it is easy to break, which may be unsafe for a restless dog, and once a crack appears, there will be bacteria in the gap. Dog parents who use ceramic bowls must regularly check for cracks or missing corners, and replace them with new ones.
3. Stainless steel dog bowl
At present, the most durable stainless steel dog bowl is not prone to allergies or bacteria, but it is a pity that it has no other colors and patterns. However, its practical value is very high, and it is definitely the best choice for long-term use.
4. Bowl rack type dog bowl
Usually this kind of bowl rack type will be made into two bowl troughs, one side for water and the other for feed, the bowl inside may be made of plastic, ceramic or stainless steel. Experts believe that eating with a bowl rack can prevent digestive tract problems and reduce the burden on the neck. If you are afraid that the dog will overturn the bowl rack, just lean it against the wall. But this kind of dish rack is usually more expensive.
5. Automatic feeding dog bowl
This is a general plastic dog bowl with a feed storage bucket attached to it. As long as the dog finishes eating the bowl, it will keep dropping new feed, but this also brings about a problem-the dog can eat as much as possible. If you need to go out for a long time, it is better to use an electric feeder, which can be quantified regularly. Of course, a smart dog can also crack the feeder, so if you can, it is better to feed it yourself!
6. Dog bowl for travel
This kind of dog bowl is convenient for carrying food and water when going out. It is usually made of polyester fiber with a plastic or nylon lining, and it is also made of hard plastic. This travel bowl can be folded and stored, so it is easy to carry. If you often go out with your dog, you can consider buying it!
